3. Risk management

Support on calculating conviction spent dates

Get guidance for both applicants and hiring managers on determining spent dates for convictions, preventing over-disclosure and ensuring appropriate consideration of convictions in the hiring process.

What does success look like?

  1. Accurate calculation of conviction spent dates

  2. Prevention of over-disclosure by candidates

  3. Compliance with data storage and destruction requirements.

How would Offploy do it?

  • Get some advice on how to work out when a conviction becomes spent in law. This is not always easy to do, particularly if an applicant has multiple convictions. Organisations such as Offploy and Unlock provide specialist training in this area.

  • Use an online calculator which enables you to input offence data and gives the legal "spent" date.

  • Subscribe to specialist newsletters to keep up to date with developments. Offploy is planning to produce our own newsletter in the near future. Watch this space!
